The 30-30-30 training routine is one that I heard about a few years ago, and I usually invoke it once a year when I feel like I need to get back into regular, consistent training in a particular discipline. The basic idea is:


  • 30 sessions of 30 minutes each in 30 days

  • Sort of force yourself to do some really, really consistent and regular training for a while, perhaps more so than you normally would

  • 30 minutes should be short enough, and not have too much impact on your body, that you can aim to do it (on average) every day

  • 30 days should be long enough duration for you to re-establish some good habits in your training

  • You can double up one day if you know you won't be able to do your training the next day (e.g. one 30-minute run in the morning, another 30-minute run in the evening)

  • A longer run of 90 minutes or more can count as 2 runs, as well


In my experience, it is a great way to "jump start" your training after some down time. It is also a great way to examine your daily and weekly routines, trying to find a little more flexibility than you might have thought you had. It can be a great way to reinforce the notion of "little and often" that I find can be a great mantra to repeat, from time to time.
